Transformation to Sell
Several of our home staging clients tell us, sometimes even before touring their home for the first time, that they know that they need to replace some of their furnishings as they are: too oversized; too dark; outdated for the younger buyers, but they don’t want to buy new modern furniture; too worn, but they are not ready to replace as they have small children and/or pets; have not had a chance to furnish a room, and other times because they used the living room as a playroom, office and need to make it that very important “first impression” living room again. Many of today’s home sellers have either view staged properties online or walked through a staged property and know that this is a very effective form of marketing to sell. Others have witnessed their neighbours staged properties meet with great success and want the similar results. When we bring in rental items to completely stage a room or rooms, this very often means changing the function of a space, improving “flow”, creating a more spacious feel, refocusing to spotlight selling features, or updating to best market it to target buyers. The above collage is an example of a family room where we brought in our own staging inventory of furniture, artwork and accessories to do just that. We also transformed the living room, kitchen and enhanced the bedrooms and bathrooms. Results: this Georgetown South property sold with multiple offers, $56K over list, breaking sales records for the street in summer of 2016.
Here is another example of transformation staging: this Oakville house was currently on the market when we were called into help, as it did not have many showings and no interested buyers. The challenge was to transform this house, especially the key selling rooms, to recapture potential buyer’s interest, and bottom line to get this sold. Here is the before of the living room:
Results: SOLD within a month after staging! Here is the after photo of the living room transformed by staging:
Another before, this is a Toronto property
And after we staged~
SOLD for 128% of list price. What was the ROI? Staging of this whole house less than 0.5% of list price!
And one more…before consultation and staging~
And after, this Erin Country Property SOLD within one month!
